Some of the answers here made me really sad. It’s interesting to see the difference on the conversations when a woman is bi vs when the man is bi. I would date, already date, and if the future gives me other opportunities, yes, totally would date a bi man. I’m mature enough to keep a conversation open with him to understand if I’m being enough of not, even not having “the equipment”. I believe in trust and communication, and that’s for me much more important than gender.

I admit, part of the reason I say no is being I am still dealing with homophobia. Grew up very religious and haven’t quite shaken all of the fundamentalist bs I learned. But I’m working on it. But also, I’d always be concerned that he’d get bored with me because I can’t give him certain things. And I’m not into open relationships so there’d be no room to go out and get D on the side and come back to me. But I think if I were a gay, I wouldn’t want to date someone who wasn’t also gay.

Bisexuals are usually gay.

As a straight man, the stigma against bi men is really eye opening here. So many girls will say they are bi and wear it proudly, but when a man is bi he is somehow lesser. Really sad

Yes, bi chick here and the bi guys I’ve been with have tended to be more empathetic, emotionally articulate, non-judgmental. Don’t exhibit as many traits of toxic masculinity

It’s a no for me.

A hell no for me.

As a bi man, curious about the no’s here and reasoning? Truly just curiosity around why people wouldn’t prefer to!

like

Most definitely. Probably preferred, to be honest

likefunny

Why?

I would. My assumption on the reasoning of the “no’s” is because people are concerned about the man cheating since he has more options. But, the same is true with a straight man - there are always more fish in the sea (no matter the gender of said fish). If you’re focused on who your bisexual significant other might be attracted to/ maybe cheating, simply because they’re bisexual, that’s your own insecurity.

As I said I'm ok with that. Like if I fell in love with a man that happened to be bi, I wouldn't dump him over it (I think). But I wouldn't seek out bi men or really pursue relationship with one if I knew from beginning

If you are attracted to him, and him to you, what's the prob? I'm bi and currently in a committed rel with an f (prior to her I was in a 5 year rel with a m). The sight of a man won't make me run off with him - if that's what you're afraid of. If your question comes from a deeper homo or biphobia, that's another issue.

1000% no. It’s not a masculine characteristic in my opinion.
